I have received BBDD, but have ordered 2 re-marks. One in economics where I am 4 marks off the C, and Russian (which is my native language) and I got 12/120 on ( I refuse to believe that is correct). In the mean while, I have no Uni places and no clearing Unis are willing to take me on. I really don't want to do an apprenticeship and have no idea what to do.

What is the course that you want to do? Maybe try doing a foundation year? Or if your grades don't change you can consider retaking exams.

I got pretty bad grades (CCE) and now trying clearing.

Apply for a job at mcdonalds.
I don't appreciate trollings on such serious matters. If it comes to it, I've already a full-time job which pays decent money, but it's not the sphere I want to remain in.

See, I wanted to do Accounting and Finance. My offer from LSE had gone unsuccessful due to my results, but so has my Manchester one. I was advised not to resit because in the year, I would lose the academic skills needed and will lack expert help; so my grade won't change, if not go down.

I've tried clearing, but no other courses attract me, so I've lost any kind of hope.

Was Russian more than one paper ? Can you get a breakdown of each paper if that’s the case from your school ? As you said 12/120 seems odd

Hi s.ash.a

Well done on the grades you have received, you should be proud of what you’ve achieved. We appreciate that exams are stressful and not always the best measure of success, you are more than your grades.

Don’t be disheartened in your search for University, there are still places available.

We will be around until 8pm tonight if you want to discuss your options. Give us a call on 023 9284 8084 and we will try to help you as best as we can! You can also apply by live chat here.

Let me know if you need anymore information or help.

I hope you get some good news with the remarks - sounds like something very strange went on with the Russian.

Yeah. Its a 3 paper thing. I got 64/80, 12/120 and 72/80. The 12/120 seems odd to me since I am a native Russian.

Hi, as a few other universities have mentioned, your best bet is to ring universities who are in Clearing and see if your current grades are suitable for the course you're interested in.

The University of West London's clearing hotline number is 0800 036 8888 and my colleagues on the phones will be more than happy to discuss your options based on your grades.

I hope this helps and best of luck!
